Here's what others are saying:
Combining basic principles of classical psychology with Eastern-based religious philosophies, Duvinsky provides an interesting approach to healthy living.Every chapter provides concrete exercises, allowing the reader to put theory into practice. The case studies are of particular note, providing insight and clarity to the author’s methodologies. They are also entertaining!
Educates and entertains via psychological insight and sardonic humor.
In my view, this is an honest book with an effective message written by a wonderful therapist.
It manages to be witty, inspiring, and thought provoking, often all at the same time. We can all, fortunately or unfortunately, identify with many aspects of the urge to control that Dr D explores.
